Takefusa Kubo - 88 - Future Stars SBC
Play him as a striker!
By onenineninesix, 24-04-2020

I didn't intend to write any review this year but I just have to credit the guy that has scored by far the most goals in my club in Division Rivals (Div 3) and Weekend League (normally around Gold 1). I know thats literally not Elite level but I still wanted to stand up for my favorite card of this year so far.

I think I don't have to say much about the combination of pace, dribbling and size which is just unmatched at least in the price range he was available for and has been mentioned by my previous speakers already.

The most surprising thing about this card though and the reason to play him as a striker for me is definitely his finishing. Give him the ball on his left foot (and that is quite easy with the quick first steps that he can make past any defender) and he is going to score a goal in 9/10 cases. No curved or low-driven shots, just a normal shot to the far corner will normally do with this Takefusa Kubo card.

I have only played him with an Engine and in formations with another striker because imo that makes all of his given talents mentioned above flourish even more.

If you somehow still have this guy in your team/club, play him and play him as a striker!

Kubo is literally the Japanese Messi. He dribbles insanely well, that 99 agility really helps him out. On his debut he scored 5 goals and assisted 1, if I saw an opening with him and he was making a run, I smashed it up to him, he bet every single defender including Van Dijk with his pace. He also shoved some defenders off the ball. I really liked that at the 70th minute, he still had tons of stamina left even...

Surprisingly good

My first review. I hope it is helpful.I prepared very early for the LaLiga SBC. When it came out I first was a little bit dissapointed because of the players to be picked. I decided to pick Hernandez even though he is hard to link because of his nationality.So far I used Hernandez as sub. I really like him because he is a rather small player with good pace and agility.To...

Japanese Kagawa

King Kubo, first of all, the objectives are simple. His acceleration is better than Adama TOTS but his sprint speed isn’t anywhere near the level of Adama. Shooting is brilliant, very good finishing, unbelievable finesse shots, good power, not great, brilliant long shots. Immaculate passing, brilliant free kicks, curve improves finesses. Top 3 dribblers in the game, I’ve heard he’s better at Dribbling than TOTS Messi,...
